Our Wonderful Week, Part One
We had such a wonderful time on our Disney trip last week. I want to take the time to write about each day so I will be able to preserve our memories. I am going to spread these posts out over the next couple of weeks so I won't bombard you with "The Baseballs and Bows Family Does Disney." I understand that all of this may only be interesting to us and grandparents, but all of you are invited to join me for my vacation recap.

We left our hometown and headed for the Nashville airport after church on Sunday. We landed in Orlando at 5:30. By the time we arrived at our resort, the kids were already tired. We had only a few minutes to walk around before heading to bed.

The All-Star Sports Resort was a dream for my Favorite Boy. We stayed in the "Touchdown" section of the hotel, which looked like this...

My Favorite Boy and my husband enjoyed throwing passes, running plays, and and practicing field goal attempts on the field outside our room. The pool was shaped like a baseball diamond; Goofy stood at the pitcher's mound and shot water out of a canon.

We woke up bright and early on Monday morning to head to the Magic Kingdom.

Because my daughter rises with the roosters, it was easy for us to be at the parks when they opened, even with the change from central to eastern time. Regretfully, I have no pictures from our first day because I left my camera at the hotel! At first, I was very disappointed, but I was able to enjoy myself without having to think about taking pictures all day (although I could have kicked myself when Alice and the Mad Hatter rode in the teacups next to us).

Although it was hot, the lines were great; we were able to enjoy many of the rides at Magic Kingdom by dinner time. We even rode Splash Mountain three times. My Favorite Boy, my husband, and I all agree that it is one of our favorite rides at Magic Kingdom. My Best Girl was too short too ride Splash Mountain; her favorites at Magic Kingdom were Goofy's Barnstormer (we rode this more than ten times during the week), the Mad Tea Party, and It's a Small World. One of the highlights of Monday for my Best Girl was when an employee at the Pinocchio Village Haus (where we ate lunch) gave her a Tinkerbell pin. She wore it the entire week, and pointed it out to anyone who would listen, including all of the characters.

For dinner, we boarded the monorail and headed to the Contemporary Resort for a character meal at Chef Mickey's. While we dined, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald stopped by our table. Of course, I really wanted my camera at this point, but we were able to get pics with all of these characters later in the week. After dinner we went back to the hotel. Because we were at the parks each day when they opened, we returned to the hotel in the early evening on most days.

Thanks for reading about Day One. I hope you will join me for Day Two soon. I will have many more pictures for that post. I didn't make the camera mistake twice. :) Have a great Monday!
